Today I started my 6-week run in peds endo. Pediatric endocrinology.
Now, bear in mind I'm board-certified in IM. And I graduated in 2001.
So the last time I treated a kid was during my pediatric rotation in August 2000.
My first patient was a 4 month old with failure to thrive.
"Err, doctor, are you sure you know how to hold my baby?"
While examining the infant, I was afraid I was going to break it. Or at the very least, maim. All while pinching his bag-o-nuts trying to feel the family jewels (no, I wasn't trying to be funny. That's what we do).
Trying to recall the developmental milestones was a nightmare as well.
Hmm. So they begin babbling at 6 months. Stranger anxiety 9 months. Talking 12 months. Or was that 16? Smoking 20 months.
This is going to be one long rotation.

when i first read the first line, paeds endo.. i thought huh? paediatric root canal therapy? 'cos in dentistry terms, endo is endodontics, which is specialising in root canal.
but nvm.. my brain is mucked up anyway.
have fun in paeds! sometimes they can be quite cute, provided they have the good lil angel beside them :P

They are honest! At least kids wont tell lie like adults: if they are well, they will jump up and down, and ready to go home; adults who have other social problems will "act sick" and demand to stay on longer; and, on the other hand, refuse to get admitted when they should...
